This week marked the end of eligibility to register to vote in the November 6th General Election. The passage of this deadline is an important reminder that the Election is almost here. The voters have a clear choice this Fall, and I for one am doing all I can to convince those I come into contact with to make the right decision and to vote to elect conservatives from the President on down to the local level.

I believe we need to Eliminate Government Waste – in times like these, we all have to make the tough decisions when it comes to our budget, and government should be no different. During these challenging economic times, conservatives at our Capitol have made significant cuts to our state budget and have made government leaner and more efficient. The next step is to pass the “Sunset Bill.”  I will work with other legislators to eliminate government waste in the upcoming session.

During last week’s Presidential debate, we saw a clear difference on the issues of Taxes. President Obama thinks our taxes are too low and that we need to increase revenues for the Federal Government. I completely disagree with this approach and believe we need to Reduce the Tax Burden at the federal and state levels. Over-taxation stifles entrepreneurial spirit and cripples our small businesses. We must be diligent in looking for ways to cut taxes on our job creators and our hard working citizens.  I will work towards a fair, consumption-based sales tax to replace the state income tax.

As we enter the final weeks of the campaign, I ask you to join our team. A quick look at our Facebook Page will reveal that we are giving this race 110% and taking nothing for granted. In order to maintain our voter contact efforts throughout the 67th House District, we need financial resources and I am asking you to consider making a financial investment in our campaign.

As your next State Representative, I will work hard to create opportunities and remove barriers to economic growth. Small businesses are the engine of job creation. To get this economy moving again we must have a renewed focus on small businesses and start-up companies. We need legislation like the “JOBS Bill of 2010” that focuses on small businesses, works to attract needed capital for start-up businesses, and keeps government out of the way. Once elected, I will start working immediately to get Georgia’s economy moving again.

In times like these we all have to make the tough decisions when it comes to our budget and government should be no different. During these challenging economic times, conservatives at our Capitol have made significant cuts to our state budget and have made government leaner and more efficient. The next step is to pass the “sunset bill” which places an expiration date on state government agencies and they would end unless renewed under legislation. This would eliminate agencies that have outlived their purpose, that continue to waste tax payer dollars.

Too often politicians think that more laws and government involvement are the answer to the challenges our citizens face, I believe the opposite to be true. We need less government and less government involvement so that our citizens and the private sector can get this economy moving again. I will work with other legislators to eliminate government waste in the upcoming session.

Many of you know that I was recently asked to represent the Republican Party on the ballot this November for House District 67. It was a great honor and deeply humbling to be asked to serve my community in this capacity. Heather and I are greatly appreciative for the support we have received from friends and family in both Douglas and Paulding Counties who have already become a part of our team.

This has been a Republican seat for the past decade, and we are working hard daily to ensure that the conservative values of House District 67 will continue to be represented at the State Capitol. Friends, we face a Democrat on the November ballot who is trying to ride Obama’s empty promises to victory. We will not let this happen.

I have enjoyed working with so many of you in the past to improve our community, better our state, and to elect solid conservative Republicans to Local, State, and Federal Offices. I will work tirelessly with the same commitment and work ethic on your behalf as your next State Representative.

Below, I’ve outlined some of the issues I plan to focus on. Over the coming weeks I will be going into more detail on why these issues matter to the 67th District:

  • Creating Jobs and Opportunities for Economic Growth
  • Reducing the Tax Burden
  • Eliminating Government Waste
  • Standing Up for Public Safety & Our First Responders
  • Protecting Our 2nd Amendment Rights
  • Protecting Life
  • Ensuring a 1st-Rate Education for Our Children

Heather and I invite you to join our team to help us preserve the conservative values we cherish and the quality of life we enjoy in Douglas and Paulding Counties. Together, we can keep a Republican in HD 67 and defeat Barack Obama on November 6th. We have a lot of work to do and I am committed to working hard for you and your families.

Please take a moment to follow me on Twitter, and join our team on Facebook.

Micah was selected to be the Republican nominee on the November ballot in the House District 67 race. When asked about his selection, Micah said:

I am extremely honored and deeply humbled to have received the nomination from the Executive Committee of the Georgia Republican Party to replace Rep. Bill Hembree as the Republican candidate for House District 67 in the Nov. 6 election.

Heather and I are exceedingly grateful to have had the steadfast support of elected officials, and Republican leaders from both Douglas and Paulding Counties. Most importantly, we are thankful to our Lord Jesus, whose peace sustained us during this process as we trusted in Him. We are committed to working tirelessly for the citizens of Douglas and Paulding Counties.

House District 67 is our home, and the home of our family. We are ready to get to work.
